Daulaire and Gayle for Obama Administration?

Catching up to the news. Helene Gayle, currently leading CARE, is being rumored as a possible pick to head up USAID, according to Al Kamen at the Washington Post. Nils Daulaire may be tapped for HIV/AIDS coordinator, displacing Mark Dybul. If true, I wonder where Dybul will go?

Repeating rumors is precarious business. The way the game is played in Washington, you can't help but feel you're being used by someone--you just never know by whom. (See Valerie Plame.) Maybe it's a trial balloon. Maybe it's wishful thinking. We'll know soon enough.

Update (Jan. 13, 2009) Looks like Dybul is staying on at Pepfar for now. Wonder how he gets along with Hillary Clinton, who as Secretary of State, would presumably be his boss?
